Denied Access when installing RubyGems for the first time
When running the command gem install rubygems-update I get an error:
Fetching: rubygems-update-2.4.1.gem (100%)
ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::FilePermissionError)
You don't have write permissions for the /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.0.0 directory.
How do obtain write permissions so that I can complete my install?

You need to run "sudo gem update" since /Library is a system path.
